the first round allowed for redevelopment and successor agencies to be part and parcel of city government or county government, depending on the jurisdiction, this round of legislation literally requires them to be separate from city and county. as of the effective date of this legislation, the successor agency is technically a separate entity from the city. in addition, the legislation that the mayor put forward that the board passed would create a separate board so there would be two entities. the oversight board i sit on would continue to exist but only be responsible for the fiduciary you responsibilities, the financial obligations if you recall what is called the recognized obligation payment schedule that we are required to submit to the state every six months. the second board would be composed of citizens appointed by the mayor, endorsed by the board, which would review entitlements, review projects and somewhat of the same capacity the former redevelopment commission board did. again, this is the result of -- to be honest, changing their mind on these things. we are constantly sh

changes in the temperatures as we look into next week. first, i want to show you all the rain in the east. this stretches all the way along 95 into jersey and new york city. more rain along the carolina coast line. that is the west side. it is a little more isolated. this is good news. it means the rain should be tapering off tonight. the bulk of the rain moving toward the north. it will be scattered in nature if we see anything. through the late-night hours, most of it will be centered on the eastern shore rather than over baltimore. right now, we have seen the worst of the rain and it should ease up as we go into tonight. forecast, with showers early on an isolated late into the night, we drop into the 50's and 60's. tomorrow, maybe the low 80's with thunderstorms possible. that takes us to the seven-day forecast. we will have to watch out for a storm this weekend and we could drop into the 60's behind it next week. >> carrie engle from valley view farm's is here. how are you doing? you brought a miss. >> this is our pumpkin, a 1,509 pound pumpkin. we have nicknamed him the moose. the f

,100 in services and that's what i suspect we should be doing. >> thank you. >> if the city needs to generate new revenue for the budget what fees should it institute? >> well, first of all we need to close loop holes. we can't have big office towers sold and pretending they're at the 1978 price so we need to close the loopholes. we need to encourage small business growth. we can't live on facebook alone and make sure a small business owner with an idea city hall makes it easy to grow and start your business because that will drive a dynamic local economy and i think that's the key. >> all right. >> it seems as though we're all avoiding the question, and that is what new fees and what new taxes should we impose and i guess that's because we're all reluctant to do that and we feel the better way is figure out new sources of revenue for the city, so i agree that we need to do things that would enhance the quality of life in san francisco and draw more tourists and expand that center and we're turning away dollars to the city. we need a new facility and we don't have one currently for that and we

work on this. >> good afternoon, sponsors, i will be brief. first our audit that was released in january, it there were two issues that i think relate to the proposed ordinance. the first is that our audit found that san francisco is falling short of the city's regional assigned goals, particularly for low and moderate income housing. while the city is on pace to meet two-thirds of its overall housing goal, at the current riterate of projection it will only achieve 16% for low-income housing and 25% for moderate income housing by 2015. the second issue relates to written reports that have been presented to the planning commission, which we found do not sufficiently explain how residential projects contribute to housing element goals. the department staff reports contained standardized language when discussing the basis for recommending entitlement approval, including finding that thes project conforms with the project code and enumeration of the housing element and applicable area plans that it advances. it also at the request of the planning commission, the planning departmen

as the pharaoh's last resting-place. they were the first stop on a long night's journey to everlasting life. by 1550 bc, power had shifted to a n kingdom 500 miles south in the ancient city of thebes, now called luxor. to the west, in the hills beyond the nile's west bank, the royal tombs of the valley of the kings were cut into limestone cliffs. their interiors are richly decorated with hieroglyphs and paintings-- signs and symbols that detail the necessary steps to attain immortality. egypt's power and the grandeur that came with it were well-established by 2500 bc when the great pyramids at giza were built. the sphinx was a philosophy of government set in stone. it depicted the king as fearless, cunning and brave as the lion. and as crucial to egypt as the nile itself. the king was not just a political leader but a religious leader too. in the minds of the ancient egyptians, the pharaoh's power and authority as a king stretched far beyond the boundaries of his country-- and into the cosmos itself. after death, he would escape the earthly bounds of his tomb, board a solar boat and sail in
